my names dawn (although my friends in morocco call me Aicha)ha ha!
i really would like to learn how to speak and understand moroccan arabic…i will try to explain why with out sending you all to sleep…
myself and my mum have recentlay returnd home to england from Agadir, after spending 2 weeks there, although it should of only been one!(july)
unfortunatly on the 2nd day of our stay, my mum slipped at breakfast and ended up having an operation on her leg, spending 8 days in hospital!!!
i was basically on my own, as we had only been out and about the day before…i was totally cluless, i didnt no how and where to get a taxi, i dont speak any arabic and only the basic french (really basic)!and i am so used to having lots of people around me, i was ‘thrown in at the deep end’!!!
my mum had stayed at the hotel in may, and made a few friends at the hotel, and so luckly they really looked after me and i made some great friends for life!!
They taught me some words to help me get by…and i would have been totally lost with out them!!!
so anyway to get to the point, i have never felt so ignorant, as i did when i was there, english people go on holiday and expect everyone to understand english, and yet we do not (i am not directing this at all us english) take the time to even undestand a little of there language!so i decided there and then that when i get home i was going to do something about it!!!
i would aprechiate any help you can offer me on my mission!! i am planning to go back in january and want to be able to communicate with my friends in their native language!!
they are already impressed with the words i have learnt so far…i even had a conversation in arabic over text messages yesterday haha!
shukran bezaf for reading my essay hahaha
